Inktober 2017 Week 2

Drawings from Week 2 of #inktober2017. I’m trying not to spend too long on these drawing. Including re-reading the story/summary, research, rough sketch and finished ink I am spending less then 2 hrs on each.

Day 8: The Twelve Dancing Princesses

Day 9: The Frog Prince

Day 10: The Little Mermaid

Day 11: The Emperor’s New Clothes

Day 12: The Princess and the Pea

Day 13: Little Red Riding Hood

Day 14: Thumbelina

I decided to keep going with the PITT pens. Even the smallest one doesn’t have a very fine point so I can’t spend too long adding in tiny details.

 


Inktober 2017 Week 1

#Inktober2017 Week 1

This year I’ve chosen ‘Fairytales’ as my theme. Some I know very well and some I am enjoying learning more about as I do them.

Day 1: Beauty and the Beast

Day 2: Cinderella

Day 3: The Ugly Duckling

Day 4: Rumpelstiltskin

Day 5: The Snow Queen

Day 6: Hansel and Gretel

Day 7: Snow White

For theses drawings I’ve been experimenting with some PITT pens I received as a gift and a cheap Japanese calligraphy brush pen. I have been enjoying the PITT brush pen and the calligraphy brush but I can’t get the fine line quality I want from the felt tips. I’m torn between sticking with them for consistency or going back to by trusty micro pens.


KillJoy the Show Life Drawing

I just realised that I forgot to post my favourite drawing from the last Dr Sketchy’s session! I was really happy with this one, I can’t believe I left it out! Thank you again Killjoy the Show for an amazing night.

I am looking forward to the next session. I’m starting to miss my more regular classes. It will be great to have a night of fun art again soon.


Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands Life Drawing Session

A week ago to I taught my last Covert Characters Life Drawing class for the year and I couldn’t have asked for a better night! Friends and familiar faces were there and  Silhouettê d’Amour was fantastic as Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands.

I really enjoyed experimenting with watercolor pencil and water brush at the last life drawing class I attended so I thought I would try some more. I like how quickly I can brush in some shading and darken shadows by drawing over the top.

 


Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Life Drawing

Drawing from our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party life drawing session at the start of the month. Hamish brings so much energy and character into his posses.

Reminder: This Wed August 30th will be the last class I will be teaching for the year! We have the lovely  Silhouettê d’Amour,  model and amazing cosplayer,  posing as Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands! So join us for an evening of art and fun!

 


James Bond 007 Themed Life Drawing Night

Another great night of life drawing with Covert Characters! Our model John was both the dynamic hero and sophisticated man of mystery. We continue our movie themed classes with a tribute to “The Wild Ones” next Wednesday night. The beautiful Tijana will be playing Marlon Brando with her motorcycle! Yes there will be a motorcycle inside the studio for you to draw 🙂

Details and tickets can be found here>


Elvis Themed Life Drawing!

This class was so much fun! My friend The Knave is incredible as Elvis! He brought great tunes and a great rock n roll attitude 🙂

I’m teaching my next life drawing class is on July 5th with a James Bond theme! More details coming soon on the Covert Characters page.


Dr Sketchy’s Life Drawing featuring Zelia Rose

I had a great night 2 weeks ago sketching and catching up with friends at the always fabulous Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne!

Zelia Rose is stunning, her costumes (made by her) were beautiful and so rich in detail. I did my best to capture her grace and glowing smile.
